My credit card has been declined more times than I’d like to admit, so I’m not passing any judgment here. I mean, a few weeks ago I got the BIG D while trying to buy brand name toilet paper, a box of Emergen-C and a Snickers at the damn deli.
When the cashier gave me the awful truth, I politely took the card from her, rubbed the strip against my jeans, blew on it as though my breath would magically fill my Visa with my money, and then handed it back to her to try again. It didn’t work. This is what pretty much happened to Mischa Barton (sans the “rubbing against the jeans” part) at Whole Foods last night.
Radar says that Mischa got a case of the hongaries (gee, I wonder why) at Whole Foods last night, so she started eating from a carton of cooked pasta while waiting in line to pay for it. When it came time for her to pay, Mischa handed over her credit card and that shit got denied faster than Pete Doherty trying to donate blood. When the “Bitch U Broke” message came on the cash register, Mischa desperately tried to find cash in her purse, but she came up short.
Thankfully Mischa didn’t have to regurgitate pasta back into the carton and hand it over to the cashier, because her friend paid for her.
